Artist Peter Max, with his joyous creativity and effervescent ideas, burst into fashion for the first time in 1970. His colorful, psychedelic designs had an Age of Aquarius bent, with astrological leanings and messages of peace and love. These Peter Max fashions from the April 1970 issue of Seventeen magazine are just so far out, man! I would have been about 14 at the time. Alas, I didn’t have any of these groovy threads, but I’m sure I coveted them greatly. They just had such a spirit of fun.
A spectrum of groovy Peter Max sweatshirts. In the words of Peter Max himself, ” You can fall under the spell of astrology and plan your life accordingly. Or you can go beyond it and control the star power yourself.” I think Peter had more than enough of star power! 🙂
